Sonya Clark: Monumental Cloth, The Flag We Should Know

In this hardbound book, Afro-Caribbean American artist Sonya Clark explores the legacy of symbols and challenges the power of propaganda, erasures and omissions through her works. By making the Truce Flag—a cloth that brokered peace and represented the promise of reconciliation—into a monumental alternative to the infamous Confederate Battle Flag and its pervasive divisiveness, Clark instigates a role reversal and aims to correct a historical imbalance.
